I'm sure they'll let you use your credit card

Selling B5 and 1M would get you close 8)

I still want the old one :roll:

Lovely, the ultimate 4-seat sporting GT? Can't think of much that comes close, a Maserati Granturismo S perhaps.

Presumably the B5 will now get this upgraded engine.

Will be interesting to see if they do a D6 version.

Need the Touring for the old dog (still have Sandy) and keeping the 1m as I think it is a future classic and it’s a blast

Would like a 730D M sport or a B7 just now to cruise about in :D as I miss mine :cry: so the credit card would be needed for fuel for the 730D Msport or B7 :? so the new toy is out the window :wink:

Any idea on rough price yet?
I'm guessing it's lottery winning bracket?
